Tasty steak a talk­ing point

Central and North Burnett Times - - TASTE BUDS OF BIGGENDEN -

MOUTH-WA­TER­ING steak is on most pa­trons’ minds when they head to the Grand Ho­tel at Biggen­den for a meal.

Grand Ho­tel pro­pri­etors Ivan Groves and Paul Dowl­ing of­fer coun­try-style meals and, liv­ing smack bang in the mid­dle of cat­tle coun­try, steak is al­ways a win­ner.

Ivan said peo­ple who came back to eat with friends com­mented on the qual­ity of the lo­cally grown beef and the value for money.

Pop­u­lar with rav­en­ous din­ers was the Hun­gry Man’s Steak.

Paul said it was a big piece of rump that hung over the sides of the plate

“We get phone calls from peo­ple go­ing through town for our Bloody Big Burger,” he added.

“It’s steak, ba­con, egg and salad on gar­lic bread.”

The Grand Ho­tel is de­scribed on its web­site as a re­ally friendly pub with clean ac­com­mo­da­tion and a large res­tau­rant.

Ivan said Fri­day night was pop­u­lar as there were al­ways two dif­fer­ent meal spe­cials on of­fer.

“We can cater for any func­tion, big or small, and have seat­ing for 60 peo­ple along with a half-shaded beer gar­den for any party,” he said.

The once-green pub has been painted on the out­side while the palms have been re­moved at the front to make way for a con­creted area and seat­ing.

Packed lunches can be ar­ranged for work­ers or vis­i­tors stop­ping overnight.

The kitchen is open each day from noon–1.30pm for lunches, and for din­ner from 6–7.30pm from Mon­day to Thurs­day and 6–8pm on Fri­day and Satur­day nights.

The kitchen is closed on Sun­day nights.

If you need any func­tions catered for, give Ivan or Paul a call on 4127 1252.
